2019-01-14: Both newly scraped images and full images are available again after making a deal with Cloudflare to disable caching. This gives us time to research alternative methods of serving full images. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

I want to make more money/get a new job so I'm thinking about getting some certs. I've been doing basic IT shit (kind of like help desk) for the past 4 years. Is an A+ cert worth it or would experience just be sufficient?

I've also been thinking about getting an AWS certification because it seems to be the cool new thing on the block, but I have absolutely 0 experience with it and I'm learning everything from the trainings online. Would a certification be sufficient to sort of jump start my career into different kinds of cloud shit, or do I actually need experience first?

Also what other certs would you recommend? They're expensive so I want to make sure I'm not wasting my time

Is the Open Insulin Project a meme?

http://openinsulin.org/

One of my friends has type 1 diabetes. Fortunately we live in Europe so he doesn't have to pay anything for his insulin, but I know this is different in other countries.
I wish there was a way for people to make their own insulin at home.
Is it even possible with the current state of tech?

So now that Google is officially compromised, how do I de-google my oneplus 6t? Already stopped using gboard. Can I disable Google Apps and only install updates to apps via f-droid? Or do I really need a new ROM?

/hsg/ Home Server General

No.71587275 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Its been way too long fellas. Apologize for the old copy pasta, this is the OG:

>Why should I have a homeserver?
De-botnet your life. Learn something new. Serving applications to yourself, your family, and your firends feels good because service to others feels good. Put your /g/ skills to good use for yourself and those close to you. Store their data with proper availability redundancy and backups, don’t let googlel/applel/microshaft botnet them.

>How should I get started?
NAS is how most people get into this. It’s nice have a /comfy/ home for all your data. Streaming your movies/shows around the house and to friends is good feels. Repurpose an old desktop, buy a SBC, or go with cheap used enterprise gear. Lots of options and theres even a flowchart. Ask.

/hsg/ is about learning and expanding your horizons. Know all about NAS? Learn virtualization. Spun up some VMs? Learn about networking by standing up a pfsense box and configuring some vlans. Theres always more to learn and chances to grow. Think you’re godtier already? Setup openstack and report back.

>What software should I run?
install gentoo. Or whatever flavor of *nix is best for the job or most comfy for you. Emby to replace netflix, nextcloud to replace googlel, ampache to replace spotify, the list goes on and on. Look at the awesome selfhosted list and ask.

>Datahoarding ok here?
YES - you are in good company. Shuck those easystores and flash IT mode on your H310. All datahoarding talk welcome.

>Do I need a rack and all that noisey enterprise gear?
No. An old laptop or rpi can be a server if you want.
